A visit to Katie’s Garden

On Sunday we were invited along to Katie’s Garden in Sunderland for a Harry Potter themed craft session to make Mandrakes! Upon arrival, we were greeted with a fabulous little store right next to the car park which was perfect when you have little ones along with you. The door was very inviting and led us into the store where we were greeted and shown to our table to be sorted into our houses with the sorting hat! M got Ravenclaw and B got Hufflepuff, whilst I got Gryffindor, although they did say they can see some Slytherin in me. (Have you seen …

Brunch with Messy Little Thing!

Today has been a very exciting day for little man and me, as we were invited along to have brunch with Messy Little Thing!!  We traveled up to Fratello’s in Jesmond, Newcastle for a meal, and to test out Messy Little Thing’s full body bib.

Along came Messy Little Thing. As Dawn’s …

After a few hours of baby free time today, we ventured out in search of some christmas shopping, and food. I had previously mentioned Pizza Hut, but had never got round to actually going. As soon as we walked through the door we were greated by a lovely young man, who showed us to our table, gave us menu’s and let us know about “the great BIG sharer” which is the one we actually went for.

Schwarzkopf colour mask review

It’s that time again, for a new hair colour! Well, 2 this time, actually! Since we are heading into October, and halloween is right around the corner, I thought I would go with something more fitting, and I’m very pleased with the results. I chose directions neon blue, which I’ve had before, and schwarzkopf’s light brown. This is the first time I’ve tried the schwarzkopf colour mask, and was amazed to find a circular little tub and a tube to go inside. You also get instructions, a pair of gloves, and a small sample of conditioner. The smell was slightly stronger …
